  Identification Chen Yi a 107 99/00

Dear Guys;
My Chen Yi A-107 (99/00) is coming up and blooming. Although
'identified' as 'Remusatia vivipara it clearly isn't that and
probably some common Colocasia type with anonymous dull green
foliage. What surprises me is the quickness to bloom with only 3
leaves showing. Anyone else grow this?

ID?

Jim,

I have several R vivipara and all shoot up a little golden inflorescence
well before the first leaf is out and full size. Mature leaves are dark
green.

Hello this is Brian Williams. I am growing the same plant. I to believe it to
be a Colocasia instead of the Remusatia vivpara. I have not had a bloom yet
but it may soon. I thought it might be another form of Remusatia but not for
sure because I have never seen any other forms of it. I do know it does not
look like the Remusatia vivpara I got from Dewey.

I will hopefully place some pictures of this plant and some of my Amorphos
blooming as well as some other stuff. I have been busy working and trading
plants but I do think it is time to add some new things to my website. Look
for them soon THANKS

There are a number of very interesting Colocasia in China. Why not post a
pic and see if someone can put a name on it before dismissing it as 'some
common Colocasia'?
